TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A Taipei landlord recently placed an advertisement for a two
ping (a ping equals 3.3 square meters) one-room apartment for NT$5,000 (US$164) per month, however netizens were astonished to find that the “apartment” was actually a narrow balcony and someone apparently rented it.
The landlord, surnamed Hung (洪), advertised a “one-room apartment” with shared bathroom and kitchen (雅房) on the fourth floor of a building on the 591 apartment rental website with a total area of two ping at a price of NT$5,000 per month. He managed to stuff a small mattress on the floor and covered it with a cotton comforter in what was actually a cramped balcony, normally used by most Taiwanese to dry their laundry. [FULL STORY]
